Saturday 17th April
I ventured out today with North Down CC for a 37 mile ride. Starting speed was around 20 to 21 mph - I hung on for the first 10 miles and then started dropping back a bit and another wee group kindly formed to go a bit slower for me although slower was still around 18mph for a good bit of it. I was soooo nervous at going out with them that I couldn't sleep last night. It was the first time I ever cycled in a group (approx 40 cyclists) too so much learning today! We stopped for tea and scones and then headed back to Bangor. My legs and the rest of me are very tired now but it was a very good cycle. I intend to keep this up with them. Contemplating another run out with them tomorrow morning but I'll see how my legs feel first!
